From everything I have seen, IoT was all the rage at CES this year. While the consumer market is what most people refer to when they think about the Internet of Things, we should remember it's still mostly the industrial applications that are leading the curve when it comes to companies purchasing these devices. Get ready for this to change. Apps are starting to drive consumer habits and ideas around home automation and tracking of data in their lives. If companies like Apple and Google get serious with things like Homekit or Google Wear at their respective developer conferences this year, you will will see an explosion of apps and general consumer interest in 2015. While the consumer market is fragmented, it's huge and just waiting to be tapped.
